When we lived in Mass., a buggy was a shopping cart.  I would think that would be a baby stroller.  Also, I live in WNY and drink pop, but other places would call a pop a lollipop and I would call it a sucker.

I told you not to go outside or you'd get "ATE UP". Now look at you, you're all "EAT"!


EAT: to be completely bitten up by mosquitoes.

We also say WICKED AWESOME or just plain AWESOME a lot.
I don't know why, we just always have.  It is such a habit, I don't even know I do it most of the time.  People from other places just think it's weird.


Wicked pissa is big here in Eastern MA, especially up around Boston.  Wicked is an emphasis word, it works with lots of other words.

We go to the packie to buy beer or booze. 

There are more, they'll come to me!

In Lousianna those sammiches would be "poor boy" and when you're eating a shrimp poor boy dressed you can't help but wonder what the poor people are eating.  I'm glad my kids moved from there.  When I would visit them I would eat a shrimp poorboy just about every day.  A feller could soon get on the porky side eating that everyday.

When having problems with chickens stop and think, what would Harlan do?
I've dealt with many thorns in my life and the flower is always worth the effort.

I stand corrected.  Po Boy was what I was thinking but the old brain didn't figure out how to get that to my fingers.
